We are doing a toy drive this year to provide the children with Eid toys. We are asking for a new unwrapped toy, which can be dropped of here at IRHSCA during Jumm'ah up until July 20. These toys will then be distributed at Eid. If unable to make it to drop of a toy you can also make a monetary donation that will be used to purchase a toy for a child.
